JOHN DAY, Ore. (AP) - Police have arrested an Eastern Oregon man who shot a Eugene man on a camping trip Monday morning.

KTVZ-TV reports that Oregon State Police arrested 32-year-old Kevin Rapp of John Day on Friday afternoon following the shooting of 27-year-old Kyler Weisenback of Eugene.

Rapp is being held in the Grant County Jail and faces charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. He also had two outstanding warrants.

Police say Weisenback was awakened while camping at the Dixie Creek Campground east of Prairie City and shot twice with a small-caliber firearm.
